Carnival rides, Chihuahua races, appearances by costume characters, dance and domino competitions, salsa cook-offs, bounce houses, a business expo, arts & crafts, and many other activities will have festival visitors enjoying a great day with their family and friends. “We are very pleased about our return to the City of Greenacres,” said Jaene Miranda, CEO of the Palms West Chamber of Commerce. “We are just as excited to announce that our Dr. Harvey Montijo, a noted Orthopaedic Surgeon of The Center for Bone & Joint Surgery and founder of Optimal Wellness and Longevity Institute, is back to lead our SalsaFest committee as Honorary Chairman.” Montijo joins South Florida Ford Dealers, Independent Imaging, and South Florida Radiation Oncology to present what is expected to be the top Hispanic event in Palm Beach County.
“We invite all local area businesses and nonprofit organizations to be a part of the event through sponsorship or by purchasing an exhibitor’s booth,” said Maritza Clark, Director of Special Events for the chamber. “SalsaFest will provide your company with an opportunity to increase sales by showcasing your offerings to our local ethnic market which now represents 30% of our population.” Participation in the event provides you the venue to distribute your products and materials – grass roots marketing.
